Having pushed the boat out in the draft to grab Christian Ponder many though that they would throw him in in 2011, however this move is probably going to benefit him in the long run as the NFC North looks like being a battle field again in 2011.
This looks a great move for the Vikings, and more questionable decision making by the floundering Redskins who have also traded Albert Haynesworth at a huge loss.
